How far along? Homegirl and I have been hanging out together for six whole months!
Baby’s Size: 1.5lb and about the length of an ear of corn, so says the computer
Maternity clothes? Uh, shyeah! I’ve been rocking maternity jeans since around week 10. They’re like pajama jeans (you’ve seen the informercials right?) For shirts, I have only purchased 1 legit maternity shirt and have been wearing regular shirts with long tanks from Target. Tried ordering maternity shirts from Gap but they’re too long on my short torso so I look like I’m wearing sleep shirts. Guess I’ll have to go to the store and try stuff on…uggggh.
Best moment this week: Figuring out what I want for the nursery! Haven’t actually bought anything yet but having a plan brings me such relief! Also, going shopping with my mom for baby clothes and seeing her light up at all the little girl things. She has also unearthed old baby clothes of mine and my sister and oh my gosh, the cuteness and love. It’s pretty spectacular.
Miss anything? Being able to order clothes online without having to return EVERYTHING. Wah.
Movement: She’s rocking and rolling…sometimes. It’s not consistent but when she does move, I can definitely feel it. It’s so weird/awesome.
Food cravings: Food in general. I’m hungrier now than before. She says, FEED ME SEYMORE!
Anything making you queasy or sick: I haven’t prepared chicken in a long ass time. Bought a couple of rotisserie chickens here and there and used them in recipes but I’m still turned off by the idea of handling raw chicken. Also, even to this day, nausea sets in if I don’t keep up with my six mini meals a day. I’m telling you, she’s a hungry little critter.
Gender: Baby GIRL!
Labor signs: Nope.
Symptoms: If I sit in my office chair too long, my butt hurts. If I try running too many errands in one day, my back and feet will hurt. I have been congested since the first trimester and I don’t see it ending until I evict this girl. I take claritin (which has been cleared by the doctor) here and there, but otherwise, I just keep a stack of tissues with me at all times.
Belly button in or out? In!
Happy or moody most of the time: pretty keen most of the time. However, if i get irritated, I feel myself really lean into the anger.
Looking forward to: Putting together the nursery!
